Our Business Partner Spotlight this month is Comcast. They have been a business partner of Metro West since 2011 and our main contact is Kay Page, Government and Regulatory Affairs Manager.
On the 10th anniversary of its Internet Essentials program, Comcast announced it would invest $1 billion over the next 10 years to help further close the digital divide and give even more low-income Americans the tools and resources they need to succeed in an increasingly digital world. The announcement coincides with the release of a 10-year Progress Report showing that, since 2011, the company, working in collaboration with its network of thousands of nonprofit partners, has connected a cumulative total of more than 10 million people in America to broadband Internet service at home, the overwhelming majority of whom were not connected prior to signing up.
